Despite the infamous “Iran deal” brokered by the Obama administration’s former Secretary of State John Kerry, Iran has committed 10 aggressively hostile acts against the United States over the past year alone.
The Islamic Republic of Iran – which has consistently been reported to be forwarding its militant nuclear arsenal under the guise of a nuclear energy program – is unapologetically devoted to the jihadist teachings of Islam, and has therefore continued its hostile aggression against the United States, which it has labeled “the Great Satan.”
The terror-inspired 10 list
In just over a year, the Islamic terrorist-harboring regime has been witnessed administering numerous combative approaches against America. All but two have come against the U.S. during the Iran-sympathizing Obama administration, with the last two waged against America under the Trump administration in retaliation to President Donald Trump’s executive order banning Islamic refugees from seven hostile or war-torn nations from entering the U.S. in the interest of national security.
On the top the list of Iranian aggression against America, registering as number one, is the Islamic Republic’s test firing of a ballistic missile on November 21, 2015.
“During the negotiation process of Barack Obama's famed ‘Iran Deal,’ Tehran defied expectations of Democrat leadership and launched a Ghadr-110 ballistic missile,” Townhall reported. “However, Obama clarified that it would not derail his so-called ‘deal.’"
Number two on the list is the incident when Iran captured 10 American sailors – an unretaliated-against act of aggression on January 12, 2016, that saw the jihadist nation steal sensitive information from the U.S., along with strategic equipment.
“Iran took the ultimate leap of faith when they captured two U.S. gunboats and the 10 U.S. sailors on board,” Townhall’s Justin Holcomb recounted. “Iranian General Hossein Salami released a video of the sailors crying after the incident.”
Third on the list is a January 29, 2016, incident when the Islamic Republic flew a spy drone over one of America’s aircraft carriers.
“An Iranian surveillance drone was flown over the U.S. Harry Truman aircraft carrier taking ‘precise’ photographs in part of a larger naval drill,” Holcomb noted. “Cmdr. Kevin Stephens acknowledged the act, but said the drone ‘posed no danger to the ship.’"
Coming in as number four is the first missile test launched on March 8, 2016, by Iran after the regime’s officials signed former President Barack Obama’s “Iran Deal.”
“The test came during the exercise named ‘The Power of Velayat,’ which is a reference to the religious doctrine of the Islamic Republic's leadership,” Holcomb continued.
Iranian Major General Amir Ali Hajizadeh explained the act of aggression this way:
"Our main enemies, the Americans, who mutter about plans, have activated new missile sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran and are seeking to weaken the country’s missile capability," Hajizadeh stated at the time. "The Guards and other armed forces are defenders of the revolution and the country will not pay a toll to anyone ... and will stand against their excessive demands."
The fifth act on the list took place when the U.S. Navy discovered Iranian missiles and rockets on route to Yemen last spring on March 28, 2016 – a threatening event that received little attention from the Obama administration or from his loyal mainstream media.
“The U.S. seized an enormous shipment of arms, including machine guns and rocket-propelled grenade launchers, headed from Iran to Islamic militants in Yemen, and that shipment included 1,500 AK-47s, 200 RPG launchers and 21 .50-caliber machine guns,” Holcomb detailed, noting that this discovery was not uncommon. “It was the third seizure of weapons by international naval forces in the Arabian Sea that month. Each time, the weapons originated from Iran. The U.S. was not the only country to catch Iran running guns throughout the Arabian Peninsula. The French navy seized a shipment of arms that included nearly 2,000 AK-47s, 64 Dragunov sniper rifles and nine anti-tank missiles and the Royal Australian Navy intercepted a dhow on February 27th carrying a similar cache of arms.”
Number six occurred on August 22, 2016, when Iran disseminated a propaganda video boasting footage of the U.S. Navy fleet being attacked by Islamic militants.
“An office under the supervision of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei produced a video showing an Islamic holy war being carried out by Iranian citizens against a fleet of U.S. Navy ships in the Persian Gulf,” Holcomb pointed out. “A group of Islamic men carrying Iranian flags can be seen charging towards U.S. ships, followed by total destruction of the fleet.”
The seventh event was registered when Iran’s naval fleet successfully intercepted a U.S. destroyer last summer on August 24, 2016.
“A U.S. destroyer was confronted and intercepted by four Iranian warships near the Strait of Hormuz,” the conservative journalist added. “The U.S. response to the incident was to declare the situation ‘unsafe and unprofessional.’ As the Iranian boats charged towards the destroyer, American sailors on the USS Nitze can be seen in a video firing flares and blowing the warship's horn in defense of the ship.”
Registering as number eight on the list – and the first after Trump was elected president – is a general threat recently issued by the Islamic Republic, which sent the message to then-president-elect that ‘The U.S. is our enemy!’”
“Iranian President Hassan Rouhani made it clear during a speech at the University of Tehran that President Trump will not ‘tear up’ Obama's nuclear deal with the radical country, and also warned that Tehran will react to any extension of American sanctions [by declaring], ‘The U.S. is our enemy.’"
The second to last threat, coming in at number nine, came when the government of Tehran banned Americans from entering its country last week on January 28, 2017 – in reaction to Trump’s order banning Iranian immigrants.
Iran’s foreign ministry indicated that their move against U.S. citizens was not out of any security concerns – as America’s ban was – but out of national “pride.”
"Iran – to defend the dignity of the great Iranian nation – will implement the principle of reciprocity until the removal of the insulting restriction against Iranian nationals," the jihadist nation’s foreign ministry stated.
Number 10 came on the very next day – January 29, 2017, when the Islamic Republic defied United Nations sanctions by conducting the first ballistic missile test of the year.
“The action proved to be a direct violation of the U.N. resolution and would go against Obama's ‘Iran Deal’ filed in 2016,” Holcomb asserted. “The missile was a Khorramshahr medium-range ballistic missile and traveled 600 miles. The U.N. Security Council held an emergency meeting the following Tuesday.”
